Question about 1983 Mercury Grand Marquis
From description it looks like the accelerator cable may get stuck.
Get down to the accelerator pedal, and check if the cable is getting stuck in there (where it goes into the hole that will lead the cable to the engine block.). If cable in there is running smoothly while you press the pedal, then check in the engine block, where the cable hooks up to the throttle body.
There are many similar problems caused by different faults that have nothing to do with this , but the cable is probably the first thing to check in absence of engine codes or other symptoms.
